When Soul Brother Number One James Brown released Say It Loud - Im Black and Im Proud in the summer of 1968, it became the theme song for an entire movement. The song and its message were so strong, it sent waves through black American culture. Not surprisingly, many other soul and R&B artists took notice and were coming up with their own black pride songs. This concert celebrates not only James Brown, but also the Black Pride music he inspired among other African-American artists starting in the summer of 1968, including The Temptations, Sly and the Family Stone, Nona Henry and more. The evening wil be hosted by Al Sharpton.
